One drawback of cutting the screws is that the clips cannot then be used on French bikes, which have slightly larger top tubes. In fact, one can only just get an uncut Campy cable clip to fit a French top tube. This brings up an interesting question. Did Campy ever make clips with longer screws for use on French bikes?

Hey, I resemble that remark! Yes, my friends and I used to cut all those protrusions as well, but for weight savings, not safety. Of course, adding that little touch of frame color coordinated paint on the cut edge brought the weight right back. Ah, vanity...
